'An old lady living in retirement was elated when her son and her brother-in-law invited her to spend a holiday at a tourist resort as their guests. She was a delightful old lady, one to whom people turned naturally and in whom they placed immediate and well-founded trust. She was not to know that her two hosts, racketeers both, saw her as a decoy, using her obvious goodness as a cover for a splendid fleecing season.
'Overhearing a telephone conversation between her son and a girl with whom he was obviously in love, although he was about to announce his engagement to a fellow-guest at the hotel, she realized that she had been invited to the hotel for a definite purpose, and she realized what that purpose was. She explained the position to the people whom she had met, and on whom her son and her brother-in-law had been battening, and then she went off, obviously with the intention of committing suicide. She was dissuaded by another guest who had previously warned her subtly of the activities of her relatives, and there was the hint of a happy ending as her son raced out to find her. Her brother-in-law was clearly beyond redemption.'
